The Fury of Our Maker?s Hand-this CD really suprised me. I think devildriver did a good job balancing the heavy trinity of Thrash, Death, and a little bit of black metal. Of course with most modern bands around today they add in a few breakdowns but dont over do it like almost evry metalcore band. If you have an open mind and ca forgive Dez for Coal Chamber, this CD will make you bang your head incessently. By the way, the solo in "Pale Horse Apocolypse" should definatly be checked out by any metal guitarist.What do you think about DevilDriver is the new cd is there progression or is it bland? I really cant stop listening to itbut then again I have seen the band live 2wice and Im quite biased.

Last time I checked, saying how you heard a band isn't really an explanation as to why you think they suck.

I don't listen to them much but they're alright.

You heard one song, i suggest listening to more before u jump to unreasonable conclusions.

DevilDriver is fist pounding heavy metal
i agree that this thread belongs in the metal thread but they would say how it wasnt metal. ****ing retards
they all hate on Dimmu too. they are ****ed. someone needs to move this thead over there so we can prove how metal they are.
if End of the Line doesnt make you want to just punch the **** out something, there is something wrong with you.

DevilDriver's pretty much Nu-Metal in my opinion. And yes, I've heard a lot of their songs. More than I would like to admit, actually.

How does the name "Nu-Core" sound to anyone?

Lmao Bottle Ink, you crack I up Devil Driver doesn?t sound anything like nu-metal, ANYTHING do you know what CC was nu-metal and even the comparison between CC and DD is impossible and wrong. No DJ, no rapping, there are solos, the singer hardly sings (only one song has clean singing) while most nu-metal is way more vocally driven.

The more I listen to the album the more I feel its one of the best this year I didnt expect DD to proggress so much technicly for so little time. I think that it is a huge proggresion from the s/t which had some filter songs ,but again I think that DD can only get better and this album proves it.

I really like the drumming, not terribly fond of the vocals though. Good sound, but def's right, a bit nu-metalish.

Heh I dont agree well for the first album I do agree to some degree but the TFOOMH is not even close to nu-metal infect out of all the big metalcore bands I would say that DD is the furthest away from nu-metal. Like I said before many of the so called ellements of nu-metal are disregarded in the new cd. Sure there is some influence but even the vocals have moved further and further from nu-metal cliche. The guitar have really proggresed and you can really fill it in songs like Pale Horse Apocalypse. The drumming was always this good. The s/t was basicly saved by the awsome drumming.
Favorite tracks on the new album include Pale Horse Apocalypse ,End of The Line ,The Fury of Our Makers Hand .Do any of you ppl have fav tracks on it?

^Men buy The Fury of Our Makers Hand its really outstanding in my top5 for this year ,it is a very broad cd containing influence from a range of styles. The drumming is Thrashy and as in the first album perhaps one of the greatest thing in the CD ,guitar work on this one is many times better then their last ,Bass is up to par as usuall and Dez does his thing. With tracks like End Of the Line(starts of with accoustic and suddenly a wall of sound comes and crashes the whole accoustic feel) ,Sin and Sacrifce(very catchy with some very good bass) ,Ripped Apart, Pale Horse Apocalypse(awsome solo basicly the best guitar on the album) ,Just Run(a frantic track really gets me going) ,Bear Witness Onto(Basicly the most Thrashy song on the album), Before the Hangmen's Nose(A very good song with tempo changes very good guitar work and drumming) and my absolute favorite The Fury...(it has everything its perfectly done it has some clean singing dont know by whom but its like only used to underline Dez's vocals, this track is pure with really good lyrics awsome changes in tempo. The Guitars and Drums are as uselly on the album really stand out. The bass is not in your face although you can feel it.) A solid album if you like the first you will find the secound very much better. If you havnt listen to them try finding out what they are about before you buy it.
